Description (abstract)

The objective is to achieve a comprehensive picture of the biology of plant invasion (evolutionary dynamics, factors that influence the performance of invasive plants). The research combines field experiments with advanced population analyses at the genomic level using first the Canadian pondweed, Elodea canadensis and now also the Himalayan balsam, Impatiens glandulifera as representative invasive plants.
